This tented camp is on a ridge above a valley close to Sesriem Canyon and the vast dunes and saltpans of Sossusvlei. With comfy and cosy accommodation and attractive communal areas, it makes a great base from which to visit these sites.
When not out exploring you can unwind in camp, chatting to other guests in the lounge over a drink from the bar, taking in sweeping desert views from the large deck and cooling off with a refeshing swim in the pool. Tasty meals incuding a full cooked breakfast and a three course buffet-style dinner, are served in the dining tent or outside on the terrace, as the weather permits. After dark you can gather around the glow of the firepit to share stories and enjoy some star gazing.
Your tent is suprisingly spacious, has a comfy bed, bedside tables, fans to keep it cool and an en-suite bathroom with a shower and separate toilet. There's a private veranda, shaded by a flysheet, where you can contemplate the superb views.

"Once again, incredible memories of this place. Yes, the accomodation was lovely, the setting beautiful and the food fabulous but it was the people that made this place stand out. The staff were fabulous, so kind, attentive and entertaining. We even learnt some local language and were treated to dance displays after dinner."
